Bruce Weinstein, "The Ethics Guy" columnist, lectures at Xavier as part of the Distinguished Speakers Series

| February 27, 2013

Mixing humor with ethics, Bruce Weinstein, PhD, teaches people to appreciate ethics in everyday life as “The Ethics Guy” who promotes his advice and knowledge about ethical behavior on BusinessWeek.com and on his own website. Weinstein brings his message to Xavier on March 7 in a lecture he’s delivering at the Cintas Center as part of the Distinguished Speakers Series presented by the Williams College of Business and sponsored by PNC Bank.

Weinstein delivers his talk, “The Right Thing to Do: How Successful Leaders Use Ethics at Work and Beyond,” at a noon luncheon and will be available afterward to sign copies of his books.

Weinstein’s approach is to help audiences make the best decisions possible using the ethics of everyday life. He works with more than 300 groups including the National Football League. Weinstein writes and videotapes “Ask the Ethics Guy” for BusinessWeek.com and has appeared as an ethics analyst regularly on national television. His writings have appeared in numerous daily newspapers, and he is the author or editor of five books on ethics. His latest book, Is It Still Cheating If I Don’t Get Caught? is aimed at helping teenagers make better ethical decisions.

Weinstein received a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Swarthmore College and a PhD in philosophy and bioethics from Georgetown University. Learn more about Weinstein at his website theethicsguy.com.

All seats to his lecture are free, but a reservation is required. The program is full though some single seats may still be available.
